Fiji say farewell to the tournament with seven try victory over Uruguay

Interesting to see how Nadolo does very little unless he gets given space, barely goes looking for it for his size. His try was the exact sort of thing you'd expect him to be doing all match looking for that offload once the 12 or 5 break the line!

South Africa crush USA as Habana equals Lomu's RWC tries record

Amazing to see RSA tear apart USA DESPITE terrible handling errors throughout! I feel USA have literally no attacking game, just charge over and over and the boks smashed them apart it!

England knocked out of home World Cup by outstanding Wallabies

I thought all along Luthor Burrell was injured. It sickens me to my stomach to think Barritt was selected not only in the squad ahead of him, but that he had starts against both Wales and Australia before Slade! MADNESS. THE MAN DOES NOTHING BUT TACKLE WITH POOR TECHNIQUE WHICH LOOKS AWESOME BUT ACHIEVES LITTLE (so much love for the KO on Quade Cooper that time though. kudos Braddy).

Wales get job done with win over determined Fiji in Cardiff

Thankfully for us welshies, the poor reffing fell in our favour in the second half, but some awful decisions against both sides. Matthew Morgan was very exciting, just like halfpenny with confidence running when he first started, although trying to outrun the Fijian cover from his own 22 was a bit brave, very lucky not to turnover! Excellent game by Biggar (even if he does his hair every 5 mins, don't get me started on the pre-kick jiggle haha) Alun Wyn Jones, faletau (quick pickups from the disintegrating scrum) Gareth davies, no doubt gonna give rhys webb a run for his money in this form. Still not sure why cuthbert still starts other than be has experience and there is no one to replace him with, but very poor in my mind, little ground plus turnovers and one rip doesn't excuse his lack of coontribution.
England are gonna struggle today with barritt In the back line, the only possibility of magic in the back line is mis-passing barritt or having him ship it out early each run for joseph to have some time on the ball (making his selection pointless, not that he can attack anyway). The aussies will exploit this. Sam burgess should have that spot

Wales get job done with win over determined Fiji in Cardiff

Absolutely agree! Moment of panic expecting at least a yellow if not a red for the backwards choke slam! Plus his nose was leaking everywhere, no one wants that much of someone else's blood on them!

Scotland get RWC campaign underway with convincing win over Japan

I think Samoa will be able to expose Scotland. The Blossoms made yards every time they took the ball in, usually getting past the gainline with two scots around their waist but never with anyone on the shoulder for a quick pick/ offload. Samoa will DEFINITELY expose this with their offloading game after the collision, or Fotuali'i will snipe either side of the breakdown.

Scotland get RWC campaign underway with convincing win over Japan

Very disappointing watching as a brwave blwossom enthusiast but they held good for 60 minutes. Even almost came back from the easy tries gifted to scotland. Didn't feel Scotland were particularly good and they're gonna struggle against Samoa and South Africa. Excited for Scottish Rugby but they seem to be cursed by handling errors and they were lucky that terrible missed kickoff didn't result in an Japanese try! They did get stronger in defence and braver in attack once they were clear 20 though. I'm sure every other blossom fan will continue to wonder how this match may have gone with a fully rested side instead of the fatigued one seen today after 60 minutes.

Clermont brilliance sees off Saracens to set up place in Champions Cup Final

Unbelievable Ashton wasn't penalised for his illegal hit! Penalty try and a yellow would have been appropriate.

Sam Burgess makes his rugby union debut in Bath win over Harlequins

SB will play how he always has played, and once the rest of the team understand him better he'll be enabling them for try after try running off his shoulder for the offload once he draws in the two or three defenders to be stopped! It would be interesting to put him at wing and give him a free ride see where he wants to be and what to do, guarantee he'd go looking for it all over!
